  • 2 pints semi-skimmed milk
  • For the epic hot chocolate mix
  • 2 tablespoons Horlicks
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 4 tablespoons quality organic cocoa
  • 100 g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids) , finely grated
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch sea salt

Pour the milk into a large pan, and bring almost to the boil over a medium heat.

Meanwhile, add all the chocolate mix ingredients to a large jar and shake it to combine. You need around 10 heaped tablespoons of the chocolate mix for this amount of milk. Simply spoon the chocolate mix into the hot milk, give it a good whisk and leave to bubble away for a few minutes before serving. You’re looking for a gorgeous, thick texture.

If you wish, you can add whipped cream, marshmallows or chocolate flakes for an extra special treat.
